From a viewpoint of karma you accumulate negative imprints based on eating meat. These animals are having their vibrations distorted through fear. While nothing is ever pure, the goal is to be free of karma, trauma and distorted energetic frequencies. You can vibrate a lot higher if you ditch any low vibration foods or toxic habits. Foods that have a higher water content are more high vibe. Foods that are dense or are made through death come at a spiritual cost. Everything contains life force energy. Foods are only low vibrational when they have no Pranic life force. All foods have an energy field and when you consume them you absorb it into your own energy field. Both Judaism and Christianity have roots in the philosophy of India. Meat is known as one of the four soul killers there. It’s basic those seeking higher consciousness need to avoid consuming any substances that are addicting or that produce a distortion. These things cut you off from consciousness. Nothing exists in just the physical. Anything contains a soul and layers of energy. The food we eat enters us on all levels of our being. When we take on these energetic patterns we take them on as our own, traumas included.
